Where are A, B, C

We often write the numbers like one, two, three, four and so on in English. 

But the spellings of numbers in English have peculiar and interesting facts associated with them.

It is worthwhile to note that the spelling from one to 99 does not include the letters A, B, C and D.


The letter D comes in the spelling of the word hundred.


The letters A, B and C never occur in the spelling of numbers from one to 999.


On close observation a strange thing appears that the letter C never comes in the spelling of any number.
